Since its inception in April 2011, Sublime Boudoir: Seduction of Senses has brought audiences elegant burlesque, cabaret, and circus performances in fantastical settings, while entertaining the senses with unconventional visuals and signature cuisines.
Founded with the intention of highlighting well-known performers as well as up-and-coming artists, Sublime Boudoir provides a collaborative creative environment for industry professionals. The company seeks to redefine and challenge traditional ideals of the industry by combining burlesque with complementary artistic mediums. Painstaking research and attention to detail provide audiences with an immersive and multidimensional experience, Seduction of Senses.
Constructing annual events on a global level, the creative team represents a vast range of cultural histories and perspectives, from Europe to Indonesia to North America. They have travelled the world in search of inspiration and the most exciting new performance artists. Complemented by breath-taking floral design, music, and cuisine, every production epitomises luxurious elegance, underlined by cabaret’s signature playful humour.
Beginning with a dazzling launch in Amsterdam, 2011, Sublime Boudoir treated guests to a four-day event, appealing to a different sensory experience; Seduction of Senses took place in a separate venue every night, each event inspired by the personality of its surroundings. More than 35 performers were featured, culminating in a spectacular gala evening in Amsterdam’s historic Koepelkerk.
Sublime Boudoir’s London appearance was an unprecedented venture for the company, held in the logistically-challenging Old Vic Tunnels. Audiences embarked on a journey from the opulence of 1920’s London to the glittering markets and theaters of Old Shanghai. More than 200 staff transformed 25,000 square-feet of bare event space, featuring more than 30 performers on five stages, hundreds of thousands of flowers, three art installations, lavish sets, and custom costume designs from Alston Stephanus Accessories, Jakarta.
